Arrests over £50K Northern Ireland PVC window fraud

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of mis-selling PVC windows and doors by detectives investigating a series of frauds in towns across Northern Ireland.

Police said the men were suspected of involvement in transactions in Portadown, Fermanagh and Newcastle.

"To date, we have identified 15 victims who have paid out around £50,000 for items they never received," said Detective Sergeant Michelle Adams.

“Following the search of two properties in Craigavon and Whitehead on Wednesday two men, aged 49 and 50, were arrested on suspicion of 16 counts of fraud by misrepresentation and theft."

A number of items were taken away from the two houses for further examination.

The two men have been released on bail, pending further police enquiries.
